Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Event

The Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Event took place at the Greystone Manor Supperclub in West Hollywood, California, last night.

Busy Philipps: The ‘Cougar Town’ actress is frustratingly inconsistent on the red carpet. She wore an Opening Ceremony dress with a shirt collar, printed top, and striped skirt accented with an orange belt. I would’ve liked to have seen this dress on someone like Lily Collins or Emma Roberts as the look feels too busy – pardon the pun – for the blonde actress. A high ponytail and Alexander McQueen shoes completed her look.

Jennifer Morrison: The actress is almost unrecognisable with flaming red hair à la Florence Welch. She was the one exception, wearing a pretty Andrew Gn Spring 2012 strapless dress. Usually one to wear light summery hues, I’m guessing this dark, mysterious look was to work with her new persona.

Olivia Munn: The actress wore a simple black ASOS midi tank body-conscious dress. She accessorized with a Stella & Dot divine statement necklace and carried a Linea Pelle clutch. I loved the look until I got to the black Gucci ankle boots. Stumptifying.

Beauty Trend Spotting: Ladies Love The Little Longer ‘Lob’

We remember being caught in that awkward stage of growing out a short hair cut, but we don’t remember our locks looking this good during that time.

Now we wish we’d given the lengthened ‘lob’ a go.

Still in the bob family—thanks to the shape of the cut—just a few inches longer, the little longer ‘lob’ is a versatile way of growing your strands gorgeously and gracefully.

Instead of pulling it into a ponytail (like we did on a daily basis), find inspiration in the manes of a few of our favorite celebrities.

Try it blown straight like Emma Stone, choppy and layered like Nicole Richie, full of piece-y texture like Olivia Wilde, big and curly like Julianne Hough, tousled and wavy like Lucy Hale, or sleek and retro like Jessica Chastain.

Just remember to visit your stylist every six weeks to trim your ends and keep the shape of your style sharp! —India-Jewel Jackson

15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala Red Carpet Round Up

Here is a round up of the rest of those who attended the 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala in LA on Monday night.

Stacy Keibler: George Clooney’s +1 wore almost an identical Maria Lucia Hohan strapless gown to the one she wore in London. Is she stuck in a style rut already? Her purple silk mousseline gown with a ruffled detail on the bodice was teamed with a black Kotur clutch and silver jewels.

Shailene Woodley: The other ‘new girl on the block’ opted to wear a lingerie-inspired Moschino Cheap and Chic LBD. Rachel Zoe black satin pumps, a Loree Rodkin ring and a Judith Leiber ‘FEED 1000’ clutch completed her look.

Julianne Hough: The actress/dancer debuted a new haircut at this event wearing a Naeem Khan Spring 2012 metallic gold rose-motif beaded dress. As pretty as she looks, she has an underlying cheese factor that makes it very hard for me to take her seriously on the red carpet.

Ahna O’Reilly: The ‘The Help’ actress joined her co-stars on the red carpet wearing a Theia mini dress. Her nude crystal-encrusted mini dress was teamed with a gold clutch and nude pumps.

Who Wore Rachel Zoe Better? Jennifer Lopez or Julianne Hough

Jennifer Lopez donned this Rachel Zoe ‘Cameron’ tuxedo jacket dress during a promotional tour in Paris earlier this year.

She looked amazing wearing this white-hot Fall 2011 look with H. Stern jewels, shades, a snakeskin clutch and white pumps. This was classic J-Lo at her finest.

Julianne Hough wore the same look in black whilst attending the New York screening of ‘Footloose’ at the Tribeca Grand Hotel this week.

She also opted to match her dress to her shoes and added a black clutch.

Whilst Julianne look was event appropriate, I can only marvel at how divalious J-Lo was in this look so she wins for me.

You can buy this Rachel Zoe tuxedo dress at Selfridges.com.

Julianne Hough In Monique Lhuillier – ‘Footloose’ Nashville Premiere

Julianne Hough opted for a big, bushy, SJP-like mane on the red carpet for the ‘Footloose’ Nashville premiere in Tennessee last week.

The actress/dancer wore a Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2011 dress.

Her navy pearlescent sequin chiffon strapless dress with a draped detail on one side shows off her gorgeous figure, but her Casadei pumps take this look to Boringville, USA.

I wish some of these stars would up their shoe game?

Why put in all that effort with your hair, makeup and dress if you’re going to skip out on the shoes?

Julianne Hough In Tibi – ‘Footloose’ LA Premiere

Julianne Hough took to the red carpet last night for the ‘Footloose’ LA Premiere.

I’m not usually a fan of what Julianne wears on the red carpet, but I do love this Tibi Fall 2011 ensemble.

The actress/dancer wore a red organza top with gathered neckline and sheer sleeves, with matching high-waisted shorts.

I’m so glad she didn’t over-accessorize the look as she only added gold earrings, nude pumps and a large cocktail ring.

Beauty-wise, she’s flawless.

Sweeping, tumbling waves and glossy nude lips completed her look.

Who Wore Roberto Cavalli Better? Beyonce Knowles, Julianne Hough or Diane Kruger

Beyonce Knowles chose to wear this flirty sequinned Roberto Cavalli halter dress to support her man Jay-Z at his New York concert back in September.

Looking radiant, the singer paired the dress with black patent leather heels and a statement cuff. She wore her hair down with ringlet curls and smoky eyes.

I think Beyonce looks gorgeous in this dress as she’s literally glowing. It’s a great party outfit and she definitely looks ready to have a good time.

Julianne Hough was next to wear this dress to attend UCLA’s Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation’s ‘2011 Taste for a Cure,’ last month.

She paired the dress with nude platform pumps, a simple diamond tennis bracelet and wore her hair up in a teased ponytail.

Unfortunately, Julianne doesn’t add anything to this look to make it stand out. Her shoes were definitely the wrong choice for such a fun party dress and I think her hair should have been worn down. It all feels a little too bland for my taste.

Finally, Diane Kruger cuddled up to boyfriend Joshua Jackson in the same dress at the opening of the Ian Schrager Edition Hotel in Turkey last week.

The beautiful actress added a pair of black strappy Jason Wu heels to the dress with wavy hair. She went for minimal makeup save for a pop of light pink lipstick and bright red nail polish.

As always, she looks effortlessly chic and her shoes were a great choice for the dress.

Julianne is instantly out of the running. Her poor shoe choice and lack of exciting accessories just don’t fit the mood of the dress.

Both Beyonce and Diane look amazing, but I’m going to choose Diane as the winner based on her excellent decision to wear those Jason Wu shoes. They add just the right amount of sexiness and allow her to pull ahead in the style department once again.

2011 Academy Of Country Music Awards

Here are the rest of the looks from the 2011 Academy Of Country Music Awards.

Martina McBride looked spectacular on the red carpet wearing a Pamella Roland Spring 2011 gown.

The ivory one shoulder gown with cascading back and gold embroidered belt was teamed with gold fringed earrings and a large gold ring.

For some reason I thought Julianne Hough was Christina Aguilera.

The dancer/actress wore a beautiful peach halter Randi Rahm gown, but she OD’ed on the gold accessories.

Miranda Lambert looks beautiful as always, but her white embellished Lorena Sarbu gown doesn’t appear to be supporting the twins too well.

Jennifer Nettles is usually in the top 5 Best Dressed, but there was no wow factor on this occasion. This black Doo.Ri Fall 2011 gown with a web-like back panel is the most uninspiring look she’s ever worn on the red carpet.
